Ferrari F10 aero-mech development in 2010

Post by bar555 » 18 Feb 2010, 10:25

BAHRAIN GP
Image

Undergone changes from Launch
1.Modified front wing at Valencia , retained for Bahrain
2.The nose winglets were relocated higher on the nose
3.New barbeboard set under the front suspension at Barcelona , retained for Bahrain
4.Gills were added at sidepods in front of the exhaust outlets at Bahrain
5.New engine cover with a Shark fin at Barcelona , retained for Bahrain
6.Minor changes to the diffuser
7.The rear hot air outlets at the rear base of the engine cover changed at Barcelona , a change retained for Bahrain
8.New front wheel rims , having now external rings , made from the same material as the rim itself.
9.New rear wheel rims

Ferrari may have claimed the first Victory of the season but F10 did not prove to be the fastest car . This title goes to the Red Bull RB6 driven by Vettel . Nevertheless the F10 was reliable and had the best average lap time of all teams . The extra gills and clever designed front and rear wheel rims rised up concerns about their legality but FIA said that everything is according the rules .

FRONT WING DETAILS
Image

Ferrari from the very first test at Valencia run a new revised front wing with new cascade winglets and modified wing planes . The new cascade winglets [1] of reduced span , are more boxy and have also a small inner endplate . The second plane features now a new inner wavy profile [2] .The endplates nevertheless remain unrevised . The changes aim to increase front downforce and frond end grip to counter face the mechanical grip loss by the reduction of the front wheels size .

Giancarlo Fisichella on Saturday tested an updated F10 with new inboard rear mirrors and a refined rear wing stalling sytstem .

Yes and I believe he also tested the Ferrari version of the F-duct, that McLaren are using.

Oh sorry, I didn't know that. Does it work the same as McLaren's system, or different? I mean, I can understand that different cars, require a different system.

The Ferrari's system is still under development ( and still under investigation ) . A recent picture from Catalunya showed a small hole on cockpit back , possibly connected to the wing's stalling system blowing tube inside the shark fin .

here is the picture

Ferrari are expecting fully developed rear wing stalling system at the Turkish GP. As far as Monaco is concerned, since it is a high down force circuit it doesn't give you any performance advantage.

Ferrari has a new shark fin at Monaco with a small additional winglet to add downforce

That was a great article. I was really stumped why Ferrari were all of a sudden having engine issues. This makes sense now. :thumbsup:

FRONT WING - MONACO FLAP REDUCTION
Image

At Monaco teams usually add flap in order to gain extra downforce but Ferrari instead preferred to reduce the flap’s inner chord probably to improve the airflow under the car and towards the diffuser . At Turkey the team reverted back to the old spec wing .

DIFFUSER - TURKEY
Image

After China and the revisions to the central splitter , Ferrari had its lower diffuser’s central wall revised also . The new design has a stepped inner section which extends higher than the rest reference line to prevent airflow detachment . Due to this extension the V shaped elements , which help the engine starter operator to reach the gearbox , are replaced now by a simple circle hole .
